New York City filmmaker steals his own bike, no problem

This is an amazing video by filmmaker Casey Neistat published as an “Op-Doc” on the New York Times website. As the video introduction says, “…filmmaker Casey Neistat conducts an experiment in New York City, where he locks up his own bike and brazenly tries to steal it, to determine whether onlookers or the police would intervene.” First he uses a hacksaw, then a crowbar, then he has his friend use bolt cutters to steal his bike. Passersby appear oblivious. Finally, when Neistat pulls out the power tools in Union Square, the police take notice. Check out the video.
